Dec. 20 (UPI) -- Three Swedish tourists nearly had their Australian vacation ruined when a crocodile launched itself at one of them while taking a swim.

Felix Andersson, Jakob Hellberg and Ulrik Bergsland were vacationing at Litchfield National Park, testing out a new underwater camera when they spotted the small crocodile, the BBC said.

When they moved in for a closer look, the croc took a leap at Andersson, landing on his shoulder.

Andersson said he was surprised but unhurt.
